David Nash is a contemporary sculptor and land artist from Britain. Nash often creates his works of art using trees or wood. David Nash was born in Esher, Surrey, England in the year 1945.

The artist became exposed to trees as his father owned a forest he helped to rebuild.

Nash had an extensive collegiate career first attending the Kingston College of Art before doing postgraduate work at the Chelsea School of Art.

In this clip a great interview with the artist:

The artist was made given the title O.B.E. (Order of the British Empire) in 2004.

In this clip we view an exhibition from the Yorkshire Sculpture Park in 2010:

Price range information: Works range from $5,000 for works in charcoal on paper to $150,000 for traditional sculpture works.

The artist is very contemporary as far as the materials he uses when he carves, he employs chainsaws and even blowtorches.

I am most curious as to how long it takes the artist to produce his abstract wood sculptures that are larger geometric shapes including circles and rectangles broken into smaller cuts of wood. This works are amazing as the end result may seem simplistic, but must take an enormous amount of time to carve.
